Local Project: Sanding And Sealing Of Old Parquet Floor in Central London
The task was nothing extraordinary to restore the initial beauty of an old parquet flooring. In fact, it was something we usually observe – a wooden floor with some small surface imperfections and damaged in the top layer of the finish is covered in the carpet by the owner, instead of booking a service that will reveal its natural beauty. Well, at least they came on the right road by calling us, after the inspection of our surveyor we knew what they are going to expect from us – to sand and refinish this oak parquet flooring so it can shine again.
The first thing our team had to do was to remove the old finish with dust-free belt sanders by Bona. The parquet blocks are a type of flooring that requires more skills, due to the different patterns they usually get laid in – the case here was herringbone, which requires sanding to be done diagonally and following the grain of the wood. Once the old finish was stripped off and the surface was smooth, our guys proceeded with the next step from the floor restoration process – filling the gaps between the blocks. In this case, the method used was filling with a mix from sawdust and resin filler, which is the most common method for not so wide gaps. After the gaps are closed, the surface needs to be polished with a buffing machine, and then the flooring is ready for the final part of the process – the finishing.
For this project, our clients preferred the extra durable the water-based lacquer – ‘Junckers HP Commercial’ in matt sheen. For better protection, we apply a 4th extra coat. Another interesting detail form this job is that we were asked to supply and fit an engineered wood plank from oak in front of the fireplace. The whole project took two days to our team.
Local Project: Engineered Wood Floor Sanding & Staining in Central London
The following case is an example of a complete transformation of an engineered wood flooring via sanding and staining. The owners of ‘Space and Solutions’ were after the dark tones for their oak flooring, which is considered for one of the huge interior design trends for the year. Such a change will enhance the luxury and stylish appearance of the place. Still, the surface of the floor was suffering from wear and tear, it was definitely in need of refinishing.
The actual job was nothing extraordinary for our team. Of course, this doesn’t mean we didn’t put our best in the process. The plan was to strip off the current sealant and level the area to a smooth finish. This process will be followed by staining and finishing with a protective sealant. An interesting specification of the engineered wood floors is that they can be sanded limited times depending on the thickness of their top layer from hardwood. After the old finish was removed with Bona Belt Sander, the wood was ready for the application of the stain. Before we apply the lacquer, it was required to do one more row with the buffing machine. For the final part of the restoration process - the finishing, we have used a water-based lacquer from commercial-grade - 'Junckers HP Commercial'. This is a high-quality product designed for areas suffering from high foot traffic. The time it took us to complete the job was 3 days.
Local Project: Sanding & Staining an Oak Wood Floor in Central London
Oak wood species is one of the most popular options for domestic wood floors as it is naturally durable and lasting and it also allows the freedom of creativity to be completely transformed in terms of colour due to its neutral undertones and naturally light colour. The pictures below show one of our most recent projects related to the improvement of appearance and condition of a domestic oak wood floor. Our client wanted to achieve a more intriguing, attractive, dramatic, and statement look for the solid wood timber floor in their living room. The final goal we had to achieve is smoother surface, creating a more elegant ambience thanks to a darker wood floor staining, and ensuring an effortless and easier maintenance thanks to a matt finish.
We started the “pamper” treatment of this 41sqm oak wood floor by sanding the floorboards in order to remove the old finish that gave the surface a dull and worn look. After a few rounds with a variety of sanding machines and different grits, we achieved the extra smooth and even surface with no scratches, dents, and marks. Thanks to the advanced equipment we work with, once the process was completely finished, we didn’t have to worry about an excessive amount of sawdust – 99% of it was already collected by the machines. We continued the service with a round of buffing so we can prepare the floor for sealing and staining. No gap filling was required by the client as the floor was in a good overall condition. Next, we continued with the application of a darker wood stain.
Thanks to the through sanding and our attention to details, the dark stain was absorbed evenly and the floor dried up uniformly. Finally, a couple of matt lacquer sealant applications were the finishing touch of this project in Central London. The matt surface guarantees easier maintenance and cleaning, while fine scratches and marks are camouflaged easily. However, with the quality of the matt lacquer sealant we use, scratch-resistance and hard-wearing power are guaranteed for years. The whole project took us approx. 2 days since the clients have already removed all furniture by themselves and we were able to work with a time-saving and minimal disruption manner.
Local Project: Engineered Wood Flooring Buffing & Re-Oiling in Central London
This project wasn’t anything of a challenging one that requires extra energy, time, elbow grease, and money to be finished. The floor was in a pretty good condition but in need of some refreshment and rejuvenation. This is usually the case with wood floors with an oiled finish – they require a fresh new application of the oil finish every now and then. Once the floor is re-oiled, you can quickly go back to using it and enjoying it and rest assured that you’ve done the best for it. Re-oiling is part of the maintenance for real wood floors and it guarantees great visual results immediately.
We started this project by buffing the wood floor’s surface. When it comes to oiled floors that are in a pretty good condition (no deep scratches, dents, marks, or permanents stains) and in a need of maintenance only (no repairs and renovation required), buffing is enough to get rid of the old layer of oil finish. Buffing is done to remove the smaller imperfections on the surface of the floor along with the old finish that may become dirty and dull with time and affect the overall appearance of the floor.
Once the surface of the floor is buffed thoroughly, it is left extra smooth and uniform. The pores of the wood are open and ready for the upcoming application of the oil finish. This is very important, especially with oil finishes, as they soak into the wood’s structure and ensure extra protection not only on the surface but also from within. This way you can enjoy an extra durable, hard-wearing, and long-lasting floor with only a few re-oiling treatments every couple of years. The advantages of an oil finish are not only its fast drying power that allows you to use your floor almost immediately. An oil finish allows the natural texture and colour of wood to remain visible and boosts wood’s natural beauty.
It is a perfect choice for interiors with a more tranquil atmosphere and natural and organic design. It also camouflages scratches and marks better than high gloss lacquer finishes, which means it is a great choice for houses with pets and young children. Just a quick buffing and re-oiling and the results are rather impressive – we have a fully refreshed and transformed wooden floor and happy clients!
Local Project: Back at VOGUE Magazine Headquarters - Parquet Floor Restoration and Repair in Central London
Real wood floors are highly sought after because of their natural beauty, especially when it comes to the unique charm of the parquet flooring patterns. In order to take proper care of parquet flooring and ensure it will last for decades, regular maintenance including sanding, refinishing, and repair is required.
For this parquet floor restoration, we started with inspecting the condition of the floor, something we provide for free to all clients. Next, our parquet restoration specialists concluded what the necessary steps are and continued with repairing some of the main issues the floor was struggling with. After that, the team continued with filling the gaps, sanding the surface of the floor with attention to all details, which is highly required when we work with a complex parquet pattern, and finally applying high-quality wood floor finish. All gaps were filled in for extra durability and improvement of the insulation.
